Having had a 19 inch flat screen monitor for years, I was fairly satisfied with it. But when it died and I got the new HP, it was as if a light had turned on--much brighter, clearer, better color--what a happy change (glad the old-faithful died!). This has been a real pleasure. And no installation problems either.
Looking for a replacement for an older 19" HP monitor which had problems, I was led to this 20" replacement monitor by store salesperson. It fit into my budget and gave me the result I was looking for. Unbeknownst to the salesperson, and like my old unit, it had built in speakers eliminating the need for additional units. Mistakenly the salesperson led me to believe that not was the case and so I brought the additional speakers. But upon discovery of the built in speakers, I was able to return the extra units.
The monitor performes as expected except for the audio. It was much better in quality and sound level when I used separate audio speakers. Thinking about disconnecting audio from the monitor and connecting old speakers instead.
